With the start of a new year, it gives us a chance to look back at the previous 365 days.
I love going through old posts and remembering what happened throughout the year. So here are the highlights and favorite posts from 2015:
The year started off with an introduction of sorts. I forget that many of you are new readers, so it was fun to fill you in on who I am, in bullet points.
A house down the street identical to ours went up for sale, so I compared the two. Before + Afters are always great.
Mounted an ipad in our kitchen:
And then we chatted about doing our thing:
If we were to redo our master bathroom (which we’re not, but it’s fun to dream):
We learned a new trick to keep hydrangeas from wilting (it really works!):
I made a quick video showing how to do your hair in a messy side bun:
A good list of books. Always a favorite.
If you need a chocolate chip cookie to snack on while you’re reading …
I made these numbers on a whim. They turned out so cute I had to share:

Things slow down in blog-world in the summer and I am so thankful for it.
I did a podcast with Jamie Ivey (so.much.fun):
Threw a party for my sister-in-law:
Then we talked summer fashion (northwest style):
I waited for months before sharing the dinner solution that changed my life just to make sure it really did change my life (hint: it did – and still does):
I finally put up artwork in Audrey’s room:
My go-to paint color if you’re looking for a neutral warm gray:
With summer over and the kids back in school, I was back at it. First up, sharing about the struggle to find good, simple metal frames (and how I solved the problem):
House Tour, Fall Edition (the #4 most viewed posts!):
My friend let me help her brighten up the entry:
This little trick makes the cheapest grocery store flowers look elegant:
Our house was featured in a magazine:
We launched a new site called Maker + Ink (scripture + style):
The stag got a diy pom wreath for the holidays:
Our house looked so pretty simply decorated for Christmas:
And that was it.
What a year.
Thanks for joining me! Cheers to a new year filled with inspiration and beauty.
